西方的“雷锋”是谁?(part 1)


西方的“雷锋”是谁?
The Flying Scotsman

Part of the 2008 Olympic games will be held in Tianjin but the vast majority of people in Tianjin don’t know that a Tianjin born already won an Olympic gold medal nearly 80 years ago. That man’s name was Eric Liddell.

Liddell was born in Tianjin on January 16th in 1902 to Scottish parents who were missionaries. At the age of five he was sent by his parents back to the U.K. to study in a school for the children of missionaries. At school he discovered a passion for sports including rugby, soccer and cricket. But it was at running that he really excelled. When he was older he played rugby for his country seven times but beacause he could run very fast he decided to focus on his running. He became Scottish champion very easily and soon he was the British champion beating competitors from England, Wales and Ireland. In 1923, he managed to quality to represent his country in the Olympic Games which were to be held in Paris the following year.

However, Eric found out that the race of which he entered ---the 100km was to be on a Sunday. This was a problem for him because as a devout Christian he couldn’t work on a Sunday. Although he really wanted to run for his country, he refused to compromise his principles and told the Olympic committee that he wouldn’t be competing. The Olymic committee were very angry with him but after some thougt decide that he could run in the 400 km race even though he wouldn’t be the favourite to win.

At the 1924 Olympic, Liddell was given a note by his masseur which contained words from the Bible “He who honors me, I will honor”. Liddell’s belief in God was too important for him to compromise his faith and his masseur understood this. Liddell won the 400 km race and became the first Scot to win an Olympic gold medal.
